  • Shoot freely and creatively when you use the lightweight and versatile slimline Nikon D5500 DSLR Camera - Body Only.

    Full 24.2-megapixel power    

    With an impressive 24.2 megapixel sensor, the D5500 lets you enjoy a level of image detail to open up your photography like never before.

    Designed to give you the sharpest images possible, the D5500 has been constructed without an optical low-pass filter to give you superfine definition without sacrificing overall colour reproduction.

    This lets you take remarkably crisp images with incredible detail and even greater sharpness without it affecting the tone and contrast of your shots.

    Coupled with easy to navigate menus, touch shooting, a 39-point autofocus system and great low light performance, the D5500 makes a sensible addition to your kit bag.

    5 fps burst mode    

    Be sure to get the shots that you want, even in high speed situations, with the D5500 that has a burst mode to preserve even the most fleeting moments.

    Capture five frames per second and document high speed sport or nature photography with ease or use it to get just the right facial expression for portraits without having to wait. Simply hold the shutter release and get the pictures you want.

    EXPEED 4 processing power

    Don't wait for the D5500, as its EXPEED 4 processor means that it can work quickly and efficiently so you can take images and record videos as soon as you see them.

    Enjoy high-speed operation and crystal-clear images with true-to-life colour in almost any light with an operational ISO range of 100 - 25600. The D5500's speedy image processor boasts advanced noise reduction capabilities and enables smooth movie recording for stunning still and moving images.

    Streamlined design

    Slimline and one of Nikon's most compact DSLRs, the exceptionally mobile D5500 can go wherever you do to get the shots you want.

    Constructed ergonomically, the D5500 sits comfortably in your hand with a lightweight yet robust monocoque structure making it a very useable body for extended shoots.

    Responsive controls

    See every detail and frame your photos and videos perfectly with the large high resolution monitor that helps you get creative in the field.

    Choose the most comfortable shooting angle for you with the adjustable 3.2” vari-angle touchscreen that helps you to film and snap from exciting new perspectives.

    Touch control on the wide-angle screen makes using the D5500 intuitive with easily accessible menus and features that can been opened and scrolled through with a swipe of your finger.

    You can even tap the screen to focus and shoot, or adjust settings such as aperture, ISO and shutter speed without pressing buttons or trawling through menus. Scroll though images or pinch-to-zoom during playback in seconds for a more natural and easier-to-manage operating system so you can concentrate on getting the best pictures you can.

    Smart sharing

    Wirelessly share all of the your photos and videos you take with your other devices thanks to the D5500's in-built WiFi.

    Review shots and see how things look on a big screen in real time when you pair your camera with compatible WiFi devices.

    Be prepared: lenses & memory cards

    Make the most of your camera and don't miss out on shots with our extensive range of compatible lenses and memory cards that give you everything you'll need to take beautiful images every time.

    High performance memory cards will let the D5500 read and write images faster which minimizes the time you spend waiting for things to load as well as giving you the space to keep shooting all day.
